We showed up without reservations on a weekday. Called the number on the outside of the trailer, and Lee made arrangements for us to take a Kayaking excursion within just a few minutes. Outfitted us with everything we needed (including a dry box for my phone and floatation vests), gave us instructions, got us on the water, and picked us up right on schedule.

During the trip, we found 3 geocaches, had some great conversation, and took a little swim in the river.

Thanks Lee!

Kayaking the CO with Bastrop River Co is always fun. Water and surroundings beautiful and 15 minutes in, you leave the traffic and noise behind for peace and quiet and unparalleled serenity. No crowds on this river and that’s a delight. You’re picked up at the end, right on time. Such a great trip!

Bastrop River Company (BRC) exceeded my expectations of what a kayak/canoe rental company provides for customers. From start to finish, BRC makes life easy to spend the day on the Colorado River. BRC's staff went above and beyond. I've utilized BRC services three times, and I'm excited for my next trip down the Colorado river, provided by the BRC family. Thank you is an understatement.

We took the 6.3 miles canoe and had a great experience. The folks at Bastrop river company were very efficient a d got us in the water very quickly and were also timely in picking us. They briefed us well on what to expect in the trail and they also had mile markers along the way. Overall our family with young kids had good fun.

We had a group of 8 and had a wonderful day on the river. Love the new location at Fisherman’s park. Very professionally run - we had a reservation so kayaks were ready when we arrived and shuttle back was waiting when we got out as well. Definitely recommend BRC!

Excellent experience. We called to make a reservation for a canoe. Lee was waiting for us with a clean, dry canoe and life vests. He gave us clear directions on what landmarks to expect to see (and how far along the river ). He made sure we had his contact number and he had ours, and he reviewed safety considerations for us amateurs. The river was beautiful, our trip was amazing, and the customer service was excellent -- as it has been every time we have used Bastrop River Company.

Bastrop River Company did a wonderful job from beginning to end. We enjoyed the sights on the river. The 6-mile trip took us about 2 hours. Reservations online worked well without any problems. Timing was perfect for pickup, and the van was not crowded (only our family). Will definitely book with them in the future.

We did the Short Paddle Trail early Nov 2020 and it was a wonderful time to do so. Temps were mild and some of the trees were already showing their fall colors. The scenery was very nice, actually prettier than we expected. We saw 1 deer, lots and lots of turtles and of course cattle. It is an easy paddle, usually wide and open, good for all ages. Lee was very nice and easy to deal with. Everything went very smoothly. Look forward to going again next year.

Sshhhhhh - don’t tell anybody about this great activity or they’ll all want to go! It is such a pleasure to kayak the Colorado with BRC. I don’t think there’s a a kayak trip to be had that’s as scenic and peaceful as this one! From on line booking, to checking in, paddling a few hours and then the quick return - everything is a breeze.
Highly recommend

I shopped around quite a bit to find a beautiful scenic part of the Colorado River near Austin to paddle down. Bastrop River Company not only gave us that, they also offer some of the best customer service and safety standards I've experienced when comes to the rental industry. On top of that they made us feel super welcome and at ease. Lastly, the kayaks we rented were really agile and great quality. Can't wait to come again! Thanks guys!
